Ex-MSU players Mumphery, Bullough cut by Texans

A look at Michigan State football's off-the-field legal trouble since last fall.

The ax came on Friday for two former Michigan State players with the Houston Texans. Bullough violated the NFL's PED policy and will be suspended four game this season.

Mumphery was accused of sexually assaulting a student in her MSU dorm room on March 17, 2015.

Keith Mumphrey, however, was a 5th round draft pick in 2015. Police recommended to county prosecutors that Mumphery be charged with criminal sexual conduct, but they declined to pursue the case in part because of lack of cooperation from the woman.

At the conclusion of a Title IX investigation through the Office of Institutional Equity, Mumphery is banned from campus until December 31, 2018. If he violates that order, he can be arrested. Bullough and Mumphery were teammates with the Spartans from 2011 through 2013. An undrafted free-agent signing in 2014he Traverse City native also was suspended at MSU and did not play in the Rose Bowl for an unspecified "violation of team rules" on December 25, 2013. Two seasons ago, Mumphery served as Houston's primary kick and punt return man.

A spokesperson from the Houston Texans said the organization can not yet confirm whether or not Mumphery and Bullough will be cut.
